Resumen:
Una universidad letona ha desarrollado un sistema de enseñanza y rehabilitación no asistida de la habilidad del habla para pacientes con trastornos del habla. Las personas con disartria no pueden articular palabras de forma normal porque la parte del sistema nervioso que controla los músculos implicados en el habla está dañada. La tecnología desarrollada se basa en corregir problemas de pronunciación. El sistema opera en dos bases de datos. El software compara las grabaciones del paciente con la visualización de referencia y mide el grado de coincidencia, que se muestra en valores numéricos del coeficiente de correlación. La universidad busca socios interesados en adaptar la terapia a necesidades locales y ofrecer la tecnología a sus clientes. La cooperación se establecerá en el marco de un acuerdo comercial con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Unassisted teaching and rehabilitation of talking ability for patients with speech disorders
Summary:
A university from Latvia has developed a system for unassisted teaching and rehabilitation of talking skills for patients with speech disorders. The university is offering commercial agreement with technical assistance to parties interested in adapting the therapy to local needs and offering to their clients.
Description:
In case of dysarthria people cannot articulate words normally because part of the nervous system that controls muscles used in speech is damaged. Rehabilitation goals depend on the cause of the dysarthria. Often the situation can be improved with speech therapy. Usually in the speech therapy a professional therapist guide through exercises that work to strengthen the muscles of face and throat.
As an alternative a technical university from Latvia has developed a method of unassisted teaching and rehabilitation of talking ability for patients with speech disorders. The technology is based on the correction of pronunciation problems. The system operates with two databases. The first one - the patient´s performance database gathers information on regular basis by recording and processing video files of patient´s speech signals and corresponding letter signs in a photo or video format simultaneously comparing it with the face or mouth muscle movements and mimic. The other database stores standard speech signals with letter signs and mimic image visualizations. The software compares the records of the patient to the reference visualization and measure their coincidence degree, that is displayed in numerical values of correlation level.
The university offers commercial agreement with technical assistance to any interested party. It is expected that the partner will adapt the system to local conditions and will offer to their clients.
Advantages and Innovations:
Advantages of the offered method:
- patient may work without therapist´s daily assistance;
- clear and easy instructions on how to use the method;
- the therapy can be used operating at home.
